This story is the same universe as Growth & Growth II and starts between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The M rating is just for safety. I may get carried away a bit during hiatus. A chemist is murdered, Alexis and Martha have new endeavors and Rick and Kate must cope with all of it as Christmas approaches. Follow me on twitter @CheerfulChemist

Growth reviews
This story starts almost immediately after Get A Clue. It is AU for reasons that will become obvious, but for now I'll just say, bye bye Pi. As usual, I own nothing. Follow me on twitter @CheerfulChemist.

Kate and Alexis reviews
This story begins three days after Number One Fan and explores Alexis' reaction to Castle being shot and how Beckett and Castle cope with it. Of course, there is also a crime to solve. As always, I own nothing. I'll post chapters until the story tells me that it is done -or you do. Now, after Time Will Tell, AU. I'll try to make it converge. Follow me on twitter @CheerfulChemist

The Wizard of Odds reviews
This is strictly for some pre-halloween fun and I am messing with you. It starts the morning after Number One Fan. Please take it in the spirit it is given. This is a oneshot. You might think that is a mercy. Of course I own nothing. Have fun!

Out of the Cold reviews
This is AU. After watching Countdown a few times I realized that Castle and Beckett did have a way out of the freezer without help fron Ryspo. This is about that. They don't freeze in each other's arms, but fear not shippers, Josh is gone. I think you'll be happy. I hope so . I own nothing, Sigh. You can look for a NF reference if you like. This is a oneshot.

Blackout reviews
This story picks up immediately after Need to Know and ends befor Number One Fan. It is a oneshot. There is a little angst, but all is well. If you haven't seen Need to Know, this won't make much sense. There are no spoilers. Of course, I don't own the characters. Why is it so long until Monday?

Back to the Source reviews
This is a oneshot. It comes between Dreamworld and Need to Know. It is meant to be a bit of fun to get you through to Monday (or Sunday for Canada.) There are no spoilers here. The T rating is for safety only. Of course I own nothing, much as I would wish otherwise.

Clipping Valkyrie's Wings reviews
Post Valkyrie. After Dreamworld airs this will most likely be AU. This is a one shot. I have taken hints from the promo and first sneak peek of Dreamworld. You will find some references to past episodes and if you look very carefully one little NF Easter Egg. Obviously I don't own any Castle characters, but they inhabit my dreams. Epilogue added. Hope you like it.
